‘Love knows no bounds,’ as the saying goes. In the midst of a lonely pandemic, a 10-month-old builds a sweet bond with his swim instructor.
It’s never too early in life to make a best friend.
Tracey Martorana had no idea what to expect when she started taking her 3-month-old newborn boy to swimming classes. Lucas was born during the pandemic, therefore he hasn’t had many opportunities to meet new people.
She soon realised, however, that Lucas adored his swimming lessons! He got along swimmingly with the people at Saf-T-Swim in New York, but there was one instructor in particular with whom he developed a strong bond: Carlson Rogers.
“Our circle is incredibly narrow because we’re epidemic babies,” Tracey explained. “He knows his grandparents, his immediate family, and Carlson. Carlson is a member of our team.”
Lucas is now ten months old and only takes private lessons with his new best pal. This cute couple just clicks, thanks in part to Carlson’s ability to go with the flow. If Lucas starts to cry, he doesn’t mind taking a step back and giving the fussy baby some breathing room. However, they spend the majority of their time together splashing, laughing, and, of course, swimming!
Tracey decided to share a couple of moments between them online because their friendship is so special to her, and both of them went viral! In one of the films, infant Lucas became too tired to continue swimming. He rests his head on Carlson’s shoulder, who quickly returns the hug.
She said, “I adore witnessing the relationship.” “Carlson is a large, burly man, and Lucas adores hugging and holding on to him.”
Carlson and infant Lucas are seen in another video recreating an iconic sequence from Disney’s animated The Lion King. This sequence is enhanced by Tracey’s inclusion of the classic song “Circle of Life,” which plays during the scene.
“It’s hysterical in the comments section. “Carlson is adored by all,” she stated. “I believe it was just something that people needed to see.” “Love has no boundaries.”
We like these two, and as Lucas grows older, we hope to witness more cute moments from their bond!
